Recently I recieved an email letting me know that by filling out a form, I will recieve a check from a settlement made by a certain large corporation. To be honest, I only used their service once and had no problem with it, but because I used it during a certain time period, I am elligible to get a cut of the settlement money.
The settlement is in two parts-- one chunk of money to be divided up between people who actually submitted complaints to the corp. during the time period, and one for folks like me who just used the service.
My first instinct is to ignore the whole thing, but then I thought how much we could use any extra money and the way the settlement reads the corp is out the same amount of money no matter how many people make a claim. So Dopers… is it morally irresponsible for me to take this money? Why or why not?
